in heaven

A while ago I was given a financial gift – a thankyou for an act, given as a prayer for my inner renewal. Some of it went on a Thomas Merton journal. And some of it nearly went on this; View image – I mean the beautiful images, the narratives of creativity.

But the price. I put it down.

This week I saw it at a local bookshop. It was a Monday. A day off, but my 3rd day off in the month of May that would be interrupted by work in the evening. The images, the narratives of creativity, a book that I could pour over, could be renewed by. And reduced in price.

It’s mine now. I’m taking away tonight for a long weekend of holiday.

  1. Execellent; I was looking at that this week too…might have to me my house-selling “marker” – a way of celebrating…and being thankful for all that has formed and shaped us in this place..

  2. God bless you, I think I know what book it is – I couldn’t put it down, but was anable to afford it. Still I consider myself lucky for the bookstore had a nice coffeebar and I was able to sit down, have a nice latte and enjoy the wonderful, artistic pictures. Imagedriven Storytelling at it’s best. Thank you by the way for your wonderful book – I’m reading it at the moment, stumbling, tanking my time to think and act. It’s been most helpful, since we are about to start a church here in Karlsruhe, Germany. Half a world away we love the same band and think the same thoughts, it still amazes me. ; Have a very good weekend.

  3. hi
    hope you enjoyed your long weekend of holiday. Book or no book we need time off in order to give away God’s love to the hurt and the hungry we meet. And it’s not selfishness!
